She completed her pediatrics residency in the Leadership in Equity and Advocacy Track (formerly Urban Health and Advocacy Track) of the Boston Combined Residency Program at Boston Medical Center and Boston Children's Hospital. She completed a clinical fellowship in neonatology at the Harvard Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine Training Program and a research fellowship in Pediatric Health Services Research at Boston Medical Center.
Her research focuses on inequities in academic outcomes among children born preterm. She is interested in the potential of interventions promoting early relational health to improve school readiness among children born preterm. She is currently conducting a mixed-methods project to investigate determinants of early relational health after NICU discharge among low-income families with children born preterm. Her work has been funded by the American Academy of Pediatrics Section on Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine, the Academic Pediatric Association, and the Doris Duke Foundation.
Dr. Guyol's career goal is to improve health and educational equity for children born preterm. As a neonatologist and former teacher, she is passionate about collaboration between medicine and education to improve long-term outcomes for vulnerable children.
